Sometimes, negligence at long-term care facilities occurs because the owners choose to put profit above the welfare of the residents. More often, nursing home negligence is completely unintentional, stemming from overworked staff who simply can't oversee everything at once.
In either case, your elderly family members don't deserve to be ignored or mistreated. You spend a considerable about of money each year for good care, and your loved one deserves to receive that care.

The attorneys at Brenna Boyce have the skill and empathy to effectively resolve a wide range of cases involving nursing home negligence and abuse. Such cases may involve:

For The Elderly, A Fall Can Be A Traumatic Event
Falls are one of the leading causes of injury for older adults. Brittle bones break easily and rarely heal quickly, leading to all kinds of potential complications.
Although not every fall can be anticipated or prevented, nursing home staff do have the responsibility to take appropriate precautions. Such precautions may include:
- Installing bed rails, bed alarms, call buttons and other safety devices
- Ensuring that all floors are clean, dry and free of tripping hazards
- Training staff on how to correctly transfer residents
- Supervising residents who need to use the restroom
